* Ipswich Koala Survey

Ipswich City Council
Ipswich Local Government Area, SEQ.

We have been contracted by Ipswich City Council to undertake an assessment of habitat use by koalas across Council's Parks and Reserves, including the Mount Grandchester, Flinders - Goolman and  White Rock - Spring Mountain Conservation Estates. The project involves a review of historical koala records to examine changes in koala distribution over time, as well as the application of SAT-based methodologies to quantify aspects of koala occupancy and metapopulation configuration in key areas.

Preliminary results of field assessments are encouraging in terms of the extent of habitat that is currently being utilised. Our draft report has now been submitted to Council for review.
